After fermentation, this wine was aged over its lees for four months giving lovely balance and body. Battonage was also used to gently move it so as to maximize the contribution of the wine coming into contact with the fine sediment.
Not as dry as your typical Chardonnay it's expressive, fresh and mineral, in which citrus and tropical fruit aromas such as apple, apricot, pineapple and pear intermingle with gentle nutty notes.
Great score on Vivino.com of 3.7 (for this vintage and 3.6 average too) will be hard to beat at less than £6 a bottle!
